Love is in the Air!

So have started your wishlist for Taylored Expressions December release? I bet you have. But wait I have couple of more cards to share with you today.

Hello everyone, Welcome to Taylored Expressions Day#3 sneak peek of December release. Here are Day #1 and Day #2 links in case you haven’t seen them already.

The first product I am showcasing today is Foil It Love prints with Caps Lock LOVE die.

  

I combined them with the new You Make My Heart Soar stamp set and die along with Mini Mail 2 stamp set to make this card.

I foiled the script Foil It print with pink deco foil and die cut the Caps Lock LOVE die. I also die cut three more LOVE using white cardstock. Then stacked glued them for dimension. I stamped and copic coloured the bicycle and die cut using coordinating die. I also stamped and die cut the heart from CuttingEdge Love stamp and die combo. A few gold glittery heart shape using the same heart die. Then I white heat embossed the sentiment from Caps Lock Companion stamp set on a strip fo Oreo cardstock. These are all the preparations need before I assembled the card.

On the watercolour paper, I did a colour wash of Lollipop liquid watercolour on the top right and bottom left. I also added a few lollipop spatters to the panel. Once dry, I stamped the images from Mini Mail 2 and Cutting Edge Love stamp sets using Earl Gray and Lollipop dye inks. I copic coloured some of the images as I wanted some outline images, some coloured images and some sentiments on the background. I also added couple of strips of gold glitter paper on top and bottom of the panel.

I adhered the LOVE sentiment vertically on the top right of the panel with the secondary sentiment on top of it. I added the stamped, coloured and die cut heart with the sentiment. On the bottom left, I adhered the bicycle with the gold glitter heart cluster. Finally embellished with White Nuvo crystal drops.

I really love love this card. This style is my favourite when I made scrapbook pages long time ago. I still love making it in smaller scale. Hope you like it too. All supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Supplies:

The second project uses the new Cutting Edge LOVE stamp and die combo.

This is a unique series with die cutting only the top half of the heart cluster like partial die cutting. I used it a bit differently to add dimension to the card.

This is an easy card to make. I made a card base using the new Fruit Punch cardstock. And stamped the single heart image from the stamp set all over the card front using the same Fruit Punch ink to get tone on tone effect.Adds interest without interfering.

For the focal point, I stamped the heart cluster on a Sugar Cube cardstock using Oreo hybrid ink. Then coloured the image using copic markers in rainbow colours. I added shimmer using TE shimmer liquid watercolor and highlights using white gel pen. The used the coordinating die to die cut just the top half the heart cluster. Then die cut the entire panel using the third largest stitched rectangle die from Stitched Rectangle Stacklet.

To adhered this panel to the card front, I used foam adhesives but I doubled the foam adhesives behind the heart cluster to get more dimension which the partial die cutting will allow and be raised. The sentiment is white heat embossed using TE white detailed embossing powder, trimmed and adhered below the heart cluster using foam adhesives. Finally some white Nuvo crystal drops to embellish. I think I need to hide the white Nuvo crystal drops. Its become my favourite thing to add to all my cards. LOL!

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

You are Just my Type!

Continuing with the Valentine’s theme, I have couple of more projects to share with you today using Taylored Expressions soon to be released December release. If this is the first time you are visiting my blog, I am sharing sneak peeks of Taylored Expressions December release products. Yesterday was day #1 and today is the second day.

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today I have two more projects to share using two new products. The first one is using new Just my Type stamp set and the coordinating interactive die.

  

I love any vintage image. So I am so happy that Taylored Expressions brought this set. The coordinating die is interactive. You will see it below in my project.

And you can pull the paper out of the typewriter to see the image.

I stamped the typewriter using the new Fruit Punch dye ink and die cut the image using the coordinating die. I also die cut the paper and the pull tab using Buttercream Frosting cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on the paper die cut using the new Mushroom dye ink and Pull on the tab using the new Gumdrops dye ink.

The paper die cut is sponged with the new Mushroom dye ink and Mocha dye ink for a bit more depth. I slided the paper into the typewriter die cut and added foam adhesives around the paper behind the typewriter die cut. The I glued the pull tab on top of the paper. The paper slides inside the typewriter and can be pulled out to read the sentiment.

The background panel is die cut using the largest of the Frayed Edge Stacklet and Buttercream Frosting cardstock. I stamped the xoxoxo image from the stamp set randomly all over the panel using second generation Mushroom dye ink. Then I sponged the edges with both Mushroom and Mocha dye inks. I adhered this panel on Fruit Punch card base.

I love the vintage feel as well as the interactive element on this card. This set is a must have in anyone’s collection. All supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Supplies:


The second project I am sharing uses the new Shenanigans stamp set which goes well with the favourite and best selling Sarcastic Chick stamp set. I have also used the clothes from the new Scarastic Chick Winter Closet stamp set and coordinating dies to make my card below.

This card is very simple to make but the colours makes the impact. I stamped, coloured, die cut and assembled the Sarcastic Chick, the clothes and hair. I foam mounted the image on to Petite Scallop Square die from the Petitie Scallop Rectangle Stacklet. The sentiment from Shenanigans stamp set is white heat embossed on Oreo cardstock and trimmed.

To assemble the card,I trimmed the purple polka dot pattern paper from Rainbow Brights 6×6 pattern paper pack and adhered on white card base. Then I adhered the Sarcastic Chick image on the scallop square die on the top centre of the panel with the sentiment on the bottom. I brushed the image with clear shimmer and embellished with Metallic sequins and white Nuvo Crystal drops.

I love the sentiments in the Shenanigans stamp set. Most of which I certainly can relate to. This sentiment especially at the moment. I have three needy people at home plus the dog. The dog is the least needy out of all. School and University holidays so two grown children and my mom all at home. No routine, each with their own schedule, three meals to be cooked apart from filling the pantry every alternate days, eats food at different time, need to be engaged, taken out, dropped off, picked up……. you get the idea. I really need ALONE time. I think I will take this card for myself, thanks! Lol!

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Supplies:

Which one of these two projects is your favourite? Just my Type card edges a bit more for me. I love the interactive element on that card and the vintage vibe to it.
